The founding of the town has been linked with the name of the Emperor Charles IV since 1358 when he had a hunting lodge built here. The spa has a 600 year tradition and is visited for health and relaxation. In years gone by, the spa was visited by rulers and many famous artists including Goethe, Chateaubriand, Chopin, Beethoven, Brahms and Dvorak.
During your walk along the Tepla (warm) River and majestic Neo-Renaissance colonnades, you will have the opportunity to taste different mineral waters and purchase souvenirs. Stop for lunch (included), before exploring the Becherovka museum.

This was a lovely day in two very beautiful turn of the century spa towns with beautiful architecture! Tasting the variety of thermal spring waters was free. We also toured the Becherovka Museum, and got a free tasting of several varieties of liquor. The lemon was my favourite flavour.
